Tuesday, 24th February 2009 14:00 GMT By Patrick Garratt


Newly-formed Ruffian Games – working on the as yet unannounced “Crackdown 1.5″ – has added Steve Iannetta and Ed Campbell as lead designer and senior designer respectively.

Iannetta previously worked at VIS, Red Lemon Studios, Realtime Worlds and Midway Newcastle. Campbell’s CV includes titles such as NARC, State of Emergency 2 and Crackdown.

“Given the abundance of talent, the chance to work with old friends on a ground breaking project and to be back in my beloved home town of Dundee, being a part of the Ruffian team is easily the most exciting opportunity I have ever been presented with,” said Iannetta.

Campbell added: “I’m delighted to be joining the excellent team at Ruffian. There’s a lot of talented, experienced guys here and that, coupled with a real knowledge and love of games, is what makes this an exciting team to be a part of.”

    “Ground breaking project”?
    I hope its not too ‘ground breaking’. I hope they keep with the same feel and theme as the original. All they really need to do is give a LOT more variety to the enemies. The only problem with the first one was that the three areas enemies were set up exactly the same.

    Other than that I hope they don’t tinker around too much and totally change the game.
